  • On the heels of yesterday's report about a tropical storm off the U.

  • S East coast, we have a bigger MAWR dangerous storm to tell you about today.

  • This one's in the Bay of Bengal in the northern Indian Ocean, and it could cause catastrophic problems for northeastern India and the nation of Bangladesh.

  • Its name is Cyclone on paan.

  • It's been hovering at or near the strongest classification of hurricane strength.

  • The good news is it's expected to lose some of that strength as it approaches land, so that could make it less destructive than it is now.

  • The bad news is, um Pon is expected to make landfall in a part of the world that is not well equipped to deal with it.

  • The storm is headed toward poor areas with a lot of people and not a lot of good infrastructure, like transportation and communications networks.

  • It's expected to make landfall near the Ganges River delta, where the Ganges and the Brahmaputra rivers empty into the Bay of Bengal, and that could bring major storm surges, a rise in sea water levels blown ashore by a cyclone, natural disasters are common in this part of the world, but this could be the first time a powerful storm hits India and Bangladesh during a disease pandemic.

  • Both countries air seeing increasing cases and deaths from Cove in 19 despite extending their lockdowns until the end of this month.

  • The storm system is poised to weaken on approach towards land.

  • So that really makes it that much more susceptible here to causing a lot of damage.

  • A lot of lives lost potentially.

  • And, of course, I noticed some 700 rivers and tributaries across this region, some 24,000 kilometers of waterways.

  • Landfall at this point looks to be somewhere on the coast there near Calcutta.

  • That would begin wins the afternoon or Wednesday evening.

  • Those are just three of the 160,000 species of Montes, and new research suggests they may play an important role in pollination.

  • How do scientists know this?

  • A few years ago in Norfolk, England, researchers swab more than 800 moths and then studied the pollen on them.

  • It wasn't a direct study of pollination, the process that fertilizes plants and produces seeds.

  • But instead of look at how pollen is transported, that's an important early part of the pollination process.

  • Scientists found that more than 45% of the monts they studied had visited dozens of different plant species during the night, including some that bees and butterflies didn't visit during the day.

  • And researchers say this adds to the importance of conserving the insects because, like bee populations, moth populations are decreasing worldwide, scientists say to address that people should reduce the use of pesticides when possible and make sure that moths have a food source and an undisturbed place to live.

  • Their research was published in the journal Biology letters.
